Your standard surf candy or silversides ..all Polar fiber with strip of flash and two coats od epoxy.. the last to smooth it out.

Bring 'em on! :)

BTW - that camera seems to be working out really well for you. I just picked up the Canon A40. It's way bigger and heavier than the Nikon Coolpix or that 'spy-sized' camera you have (Sony?) but Canon makes a diving case good to 100ft and the cost of the camera (w/o case) was $299.

I am hoping some of our photography guys will be interested in a new Forum section on photography?

I like to wrap the shank with Silver Braid all the way to the bend, ala Bob Pop.; this simulates the "Belly Sack" of many small bait fish.

The Polar Fibre Looks Great! I've done Most of mine with Super-Hair, but I've also done Buck-tail & some Bunney Strips.

BTW: ALL of my epoxies from last season have turned cloudy -- like Milk. I guess I should think about going to 20 minute (they claim it stays clear longer) or Just tie epoxies in small batches as I need them!

Grego, the picture does not show it well, but I do tye the shank with pearl braid to creat the belling . On others I wrap one strip of silver flashabou around the shank.
